Web address showing incorrectly in browser.
My website address is not showing properly in my web browser.
How it should show:
However, its showing WEBSITE.COM on all pages and not showing its current webpage address.
Take a look here: ajstudio.co.uk

You're using frames. Only the URL of top frame will show in the address bar.

Welcome to DevShed Forums, AJStudios.
It's been a long time since I've seen it discussed, but I think that's called "domain masking". You've found out one of the many problems related to it.

Thank you very much for your replies .
Frames, I have been told this by a few people?
I'm not sure if this will change anything, but if you go onto my actual "original web address", it shows up perfectly fine.

Yes, we already found that out. So you signed up for "subdomain hosting" at www.freewebhostingarea.com? Perhaps you should try signing up for "domain hosting" instead.
If you're asking what frames are, in this context, they are an outdated technology for making a web page out of several (2 to 4 were common) smaller pages.

I do apologise, but I am very unclear here what I need to do to correct this problem?
Is it do to with my HTML Script? or is it do to with my hosting provider?
Where do I go from here.. ?

Frames are an HTML4 feature, but the frame page used in this manner would be controlled by the host, not you. So, yes, you should try contacting your web host.

Thanks for that, I will contact them, if no luck, I will change my provider, possibly a paid one.

Yes, this is happening because of frames, you have created separate pages but you are calling them under same page. I would suggest you not to use frames. Using frames lowers the speed of your website and even search engines do not prefer websites that are built in frames.

If you decide on a new host look at http://dreamhost.com/. The prices are reasonable and the service is excellent.

By any chance, could someone help me on how to remove frames? or is the stage I am at too late to do this?
I didn't know I was even working with frames .
Im puzzled to why it is working with my original hosting link - ajstudio.orgfree.com and not my domain link - www.ajstudio.co.uk.
February 7th, 2013, 02:06 PM
So what did your host say about it?
February 7th, 2013, 02:48 PM
I didn't contact them, I decided to just try out a good few different hosting companies and see if anything changed.

As Kravvitz mentioned earlier, you need to use the "free domain hosting" feature @ http://www.freewebhostingarea.com/ and not the "free subdomain hosting" feature.
By using the subdomain feature, you are using a host-redirect which uses the frames.
If you use the "free domain feature" and setup the proper DNS for your ajstudio.co.uk domain, all issues should be cleared up.

Yeah friend , i think it is called "domain masking" , where your site's domain not visible and instead of it will show like these pages
